Our vision – By 2025, disabled people in Britain should have the same opportunities and choices as non-disabled people to improve their quality of life and be respected and included as equal members of society. Our purpose – We are the guardians within government of the vision of equality for disabled people by 2025.
The Office for Disability Issues (ODI) has been set up to help government deliver on the commitment made in the report, ‘Improving the Life Chances of Disabled People’. The report says that by 2025, disabled people should have the same opportunities and choices as non-disabled people and be respected and included as equal members of society.
The ODI acts as a champion of disabled people within government. We work with all departments to help them better understand and meet the needs and aspirations of disabled people. Read about why the ODI is needed, our purpose, mission and objectives and what we do.
